Historic Park City seeks participants for the annual Electric Parade scheduled for November 28, 2015.

Park City, Utah (November 6, 2015) – Historic Park City seeks participants for the annual Electric Parade scheduled for November 28, 2015. Participants are invited to light up their vehicles, turn up the volume to holiday music and join the festivities as spectators take to Historic Park City’s Main Street for a colorful glow of holiday cheer. $500 in cash prizes will be awarded in four categories, awarded by a panel of local judges. There is no entry fee to enter the Electric Parade. 

“Saturday, November 28, Small Business Saturday, is the perfect day to launch the Holiday season in Historic Park City,” said Alison Butz, Executive Director of the HPCA. “The Electric Parade will immediately follow the lighting of the official Town Christmas Tree in Miners Park and the lighting of the Main Street lights. We’ve seen increased attendance the last few years. We’d love to see float participation grow this year.”

The parade, which is free and open to the public, is a carnival of glittering cars, trucks, trolleys, bicycles and other creative vehicles that celebrates the kickoff of the Holiday season in Park City.

Participants will meet at City Park on November 28 at 5:30 pm and depart for Main Street at 6pm. The route will proceed up Park Avenue, to the top of Main Street, down Swede Alley, across Heber Avenue and conclude on lower Main Street. Ideas on how to decorate your vehicle using portable batteries or car batteries are available online. There is no entry fee to participate, but participants must register by November 27 by emailing Meisha Lawson Ross at
